Northeast Ohio is going to the birds

Most of us can tell the difference between a cardinal and a blue jay, but do you know your tufted titmouse from your white-breasted nuthatch? Your hermit thrush from your brown thrasher?

Jen Brumfield, naturalist with the Cleveland Metroparks, knows a little something about spotting birds. In 2011, Jen identified a record-setting 240 bird species in Cuyahoga County as part of the American Birding Association’s Big Year competition. Jen broke her own record in 2012, recording a phenomenal 270 species.

Come to Westlake Porter Public Library on Tuesday, Aug. 23, at 7:00 p.m. to hear Jen talk about birds in our region as well as suggest the best local parks and areas to spot birds. Jen will also let us know how to attract birds to our own backyards and what tools we'll need to get started. Don't miss this program! Call 440-250-5460 to register.
